Wife and I after a dirt cheap convertible to do a charity run this summer.
It doesn't matter if it's bashed about so long as it drives ok and has a couple of thousand miles left in it.
It will be scrapped once it gets to Spain (if it gets :mrgreen: )

Please post on here or pm me if you have anything that might suit

Cheers

Vin

Hi Vin,

Might help if you stated where you are based. I did see a 2001 silver 9-3 with blue roof, just mot'd for £350.00. In Preston, Lancashire....

Cheapest vert will be a gm900 M to R reg.
Buy one with a broken roof (most will be broke) and just open and shut by hand(s)
Should be able to get one with enough left to get to Spain for £200 max

Hi Mossy and Steve

I stay up in the highlands but with the weather being that bit colder there aren't as many verts up here.

Preston would of been fine as I have family in Glasgow I can break journey up with but to be honest we
Would travel a long way south for a car.
It now seems though that the charity run for me is on hold for a year i had been unwell recently and was told by DVLA that I couldn't drive until my doctor said so. I improved and the Doc gave me the all clear so I was driving again and signed up for the charity run . I've now had a letter from the DVLA saying that they have done a medical investigation on me and my licence is revoked for a year.

I've had to cancel the run for this year but fully intend to do it next year so am still looking for the car if anything comes up.

Cheers for replying

Vin
